In Grado , a quiet and rainy town in Asturias (Spain), a small mastiff puppy was recently found in nothing less than a garbage dump . Those who found the puppy point out the small boy’s terrible face of panic when he was saved.
The puppy was left there in a bag as if it were anything that is thrown in the dump.
The entire town was appalled by such a heinous crime, and numerous organizations, including the Grado y sus Valles Animal Shelter, have invited all members of the community to assist in finding the perpetrator and receiving the weight of justice.
The major hypothesis is that the person who abandoned him does not reside there and only relocated there to dump the tiny puppy.
The Foundation in charge of the young boy’s care, whom he named Luther, is getting all types of donations and help in order to preserve the life of the puppy, who received a disappointing prognosis following his first veterinary check-up.
The puppy has the classic symptoms of parvovirus.
He has two open wounds on one of his legs that are thought to have been inflicted by intentional maltreatment. He has a high fever, and the blood test findings were also concerning. The Foundation’s volunteers will donate blood from other pups to her.
Because of his acute malnutrition, the tiny boy is emaciated, suffering from severe dehydration and considerable physical weakness.
However, one of the most concerning aspects of the medical report was the discovery of several foreign objects in his stomach. It contains plastic pieces, a chunk of metal the size of a two-euro coin, and aluminum foil remains.
Other foreign items are present in his stomach, but they cannot be recognized with the tests and will be seen only when he is operated on. In addition to all of this, he has several parasites, and the vets have yet to determine the type of parasite in order to treat him properly.
He is now being given morphine as a pain medication to keep him from suffering any longer.

His stomach problems demand that he be operated on as soon as possible, but because he is so weak, it is hoped that he will be stabilized as soon as possible so that he may be operated on tomorrow.
Any surgery in his state is significant risk, but it is critical that he has the procedure in order to survive.
The maltreatment and terrible conditions that they had to expose such a young puppy to in order for his health to reach such a severe stage are genuinely shocking. Let us pray that the authorities find the offender and that adorable puppy survives.
UPDATE: The Protector’s application for an adoption family for Luther received hundreds of generous offers. When he was two months old, he was ultimately adopted by a beautiful family.
We invite you to share this news and join us against the terrible abuse suffered by this little mastiff.
